SALT LAKE CITY, April 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The wait is over! Today, Alpha Dominche announced the release of its revolutionary and award-winning brewer, the Steampunk 4.0. Equally adept with both coffee and tea, the Steampunk 4.0 delivers an unprecedented variety of flavor profiles with record speed, consistently replicating popular brew styles from French press to siphon to pour-over, while uncovering new and exciting profiles not found anywhere else. To celebrate the national debut, Alpha Dominche and select cafes across the nation are sampling Steampunk coffee or tea – for free. The first 25 customers that show their phone to the barista with the tweet "@AlphaDominche Hello #ADSteampunk" will be poured a FREE coffee or tea, crafted on the new Steampunk 4.0. Participating cafes include La Colombe in New York and Philadelphia, nobrow coffee werks in Salt Lake City, Seventh Tea Bar in Costa Mesa, Calif., and Verve Coffee Roasters in Santa Cruz, Calif.
"I found myself constantly thinking of ways to produce a better cup of coffee, and as a cafe owner and coffee lover, I wanted to make a brewer that could not only do that, but also make better coffee accessible to everyone," said Khristian Bombeck, president and founder of Alpha Dominche. "I had all these parts lying around, so I combined the boiler from an old espresso machine with a siphon brewing chamber, and found that it made fantastic tasting coffee in far less time. It was an 'ah ha' moment, and that's when the first Steampunk was born."
The Steampunk 4.0 brings to the table what no other brewer has been able to do before; not only can it duplicate traditional flavor profiles and produce an unparalleled cup with a much shorter brew time, it puts the power in the hands of the barista to create all new recipes with simple changes in the machine's brewing commands. Bringing the coffee and tea industry into a radical new age, the Steampunk 4.0 opens the door to enticing flavor profiles never before tasted.
"The Steampunk 4.0 will no doubt become the cornerstone coffee brewing machine in cafes across the U.S.," said Todd Carmichael, co-founder of La Colombe Torrefaction. "It consistently makes a perfect custom-brewed cup within 60 seconds, delivering great coffee with less wait time."
